For all weddings

Adams Photography is limited by the guidelines of the Ceremony Official or Clergy and the reception site management. The Client agrees to accept the technical results of their imposition on Adams Photography. Negotiations with such officials for moderation of guidelines are the Client's responsibility. It is a strict understanding that Adams Photography is retained as the exclusive official photographer for the assignment. The Client undertakes that every facility will be granted to enable the efficient carrying out of the assignment with the minimum of interruption in a timely manner.
